May 2000. CCNMTL has partnered with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in developing a program to train students over the summer and place them within academic departments. This highly selective program will provide faculty with additional support for the use of new media in teaching and learning and will extend the Center? ability to reach out to increasing numbers of faculty across the campus. Ten departments have students in the program with seven additional students who will be trained to support projects in courses ranging from Infectious Disease to African American Studies and Psychology.

The seventeen graduate students, Departmental Associate Educational Technologists (AETs) will participate in an immersive six-week summer training program to aquire Web development skills and learn about pedagogical strategies that exploit the full educational potential of digital technologies. During the academic year, AETs will work closely with Center staff to get all courses in their department online and work with faculty on larger course development projects. In addition to stipends, AETs will have the use of a laptop for the year so they can demonstrate possibilities to faculty and develop course Web content anywhere on campus.
